Licealiz battles head lice infestation in Mindanao with Kilusang Kontra Kuto

About one-third of elementary public school students in the Philippines suffer from head lice-related problems. Head lice infestation or pediculosis can cause severe itchiness and infection of the scalp, but this could be the least of these children’s worries; the social stigma associated with having kuto can leave lasting psychological damage on both children and their parents.

A survey of communities visited by the Licealiz caravan last year found that 47% of respondents from Visayas and 76% of respondents from Mindanao said that their children were bullied and teased for having head lice, causing some of them to miss school to avoid their peers. The parents, on the other hand, feel incompetent and embarrassed for being unable to prevent head lice from infesting their children.

In response to this, Lamoiyan Corporation’s Licealiz Head Lice Treatment Shampoo launched Nationwide Oplan Alis Kuto as a part of its Kilusang Kontra Kuto effort to educate the public on lice infestation issues. The caravan was launched in partnership with the Department of Education, University of the Philippines Manila College of Public Health and Mommy Bloggers Philippines with the goal of traveling to different schools and barangays all over the country to hold shampooing programs and lectures for students and their parents.

Lamoiyan Corporation is set to end the year with 30 public schools visited and over 8,000 children shampooed.


The Kilusang Kontra Kuto visits Ayala Central School in Zamboanga City for Nationwide Oplan Alis Kuto.

“We want to remove the stigma associated with having kuto by educating communities on lice infestation issues,” said Lamoiyan Corporation Marketing Director Bing Cavestany. “We want to drive home the message that everyone can be potentially infested by kuto, that it’s not something to be ashamed about, and definitely not something to ridicule others for. We also hope to encourage these communities to unite and take action to solve this public health problem together,” shared Cavestany.

Licealiz invites everyone to join the Kilusang Kontra Kuto in changing the public’s perception about head lice infestation and spreading correct information regarding head lice prevention and treatment.

World Teacher’s Day Celebration 2017

How do you celebrate the World Teacher’s Day? I am not a teacher though I when I was younger it was my dream. I know that is was my ambition because I have seen my yearbook during my Preschool Graduation and it was written there. Now I realized that it wasn’t my calling because today I am not a teacher by profession.

I am very active in my children’s school activities because I am the GPTA Treasurer (again) and the SGC Chairperson for this school year. Every year we always celebrate World Teacher’s Day with a theme for our teachers to wear something different from what they usually wear during school days. We used to have a Floral/Hawaiian Theme, we also had Retro/70s Theme and last year we had an all White Theme. And we do not allow the teachers to know what we have prepared for them. The GPTA and SGC officers works hand in hand to provide a surprise celebration for the teachers every year.

This year we asked our teachers to come in their Disney Inspired Costume or Attire. We had a program for the morning, a sumptuous lunch then parlor games for the whole afternoon. Our teachers are so happy during our celebration and we are so glad that they were. We appreciate the hard work that they do every day to educate our children and the children of the next generation.

Before I forget this year’s theme is “Gurong Pilipino; Kaakbay sa Progreso”.

Used cars vs new cars vs certified pre-owned – what will you buy?

Sponsored Post.

Many people will choose brand new cars over anything else. And one of the reasons is that they want to be the first owners and they want an almost zero mileage in a car. I think these consumers want their car to last for a long time. For some, they want a used car with low mileage so that it will be easy for them to change whenever they want to as used cars are much affordable. Also, when they are on a budget, they always prefer used cars especially the one that’s being sold by owner. Of course, they will ask their mechanics to check if a particular car is worth the money. Some will choose for the certified pre-owned to make sure that the car they will buy is in good condition.
